I've spent 14 of my 15 years supporting In-Service Engineering (ISE) and NAVAIR within Propulsion and Power. I am enthusiastic about the challenges ahead, and as the 126.96.36.199 Turbojet/Misc. ISE Branch Head, I look forward to gaining a broader view of ISE and NAVAIR. I started at NAVAIR Patuxent River in 4.4 Propulsion and Power as a Basic Design Engineer (BDE) within the Engineering Science and Development Program (ESDP). I gained experience through rotations as the J85 BDE, J85 FST, and F405 BDE. In 2005, I transferred to Fleet Readiness Center Southeast, completing the ESDP program as a F414 FST engineer. I spent the next 12 years within the F414 FST, starting as a journeyman engineer, then promoting up to Subject Matter Expert (SME). During my time within the F414 FST, I gained a wealth of knowledge in depot operations and repair, along with how FST efforts impacted the fleet. In 2018, I took on a new challenge, working within 4.1.9 Quality and Manufacturing branch as an Integrated Quality Team Lead (IQTL) and quality engineering SME. This experience expanded my view of FRCSE by working with the 627 Industrial Processes Integrated Product Team (IPT). The Industrial Processes IPT manages performance of a multitude of repair processes on components and parts from all depot production branches with a wide array of Type Model Series (TMS), a critical process flow within FRCSE. I was also afforded the opportunity to mentor, and I've enjoyed coaching and teaching new hires, interns, and colleagues as an FST engineer and IQTL at FRCSE. In 2019, I graduated from the National Leadership Development Program (NLDP). As the 188.8.131.52 Turbojet/Misc. ISE Branch Head, my goal is to engage and promote knowledge sharing across Propulsion and Power and other competencies such that NAVAIR becomes stronger overall.
